Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 29 points on 11-of-16 FGs and 5-of-8 FTs in Tuesday's disappointing home loss, adding four rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks in 33 minutes.
Carlos Boozer had no chance vs. Millsap defensively, so the Hawks wisely kept feeding the ball to the Sapper, who even hit 2-of-4 shots from downtown. Atlanta lost by the final score of 109-114 due to lousy defense, allowing the Lakers to shoot 54 percent from the field with 13 offensive rebounds. This was their first home loss of the season and they'll look to get back in the win column vs. Detroit on Friday. Nov 18 - 10:08 PM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet as per usual with 19 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

It was the 30-17 line from Wednesday, but this is a massive line from the Heat killer. Millsap isn't shooting the ball well and was just 3-of-6 from the line tonight, but he's still a tremendous player with top-30 value as a potential buy-low.

Paul Millsap was apparently fired up about playing his former team on Wednesday and torched the Jazz for 30 points, 17 rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers on 13-of-23 shooting.

Millsap's name wasn't spelled correctly on his jersey, and he might want to consider keeping that one around. He didn't attempt a free throw tonight, but didn't need to on his way to one of the best lines of the night. If you used him in a daily league in hopes that he would scorch his former team, it paid off. The same did not hold true for Jeff Green and Channing Frye tonight.

Paul Millsap spoke highly of Knicks head coach Derek Fisher when he was asked about his impending free agency.

Millsap will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2014-15 season and the Knicks are sure to come knocking. When asked about playing in New York, Millsap said, "Anywhere could be an option. But my loyalty right now is in Atlanta." The 29-year-old also spoke of his friendship with Derek Fisher from their time in Utah together, so there could be some fuel to this fire. Free agency aside, Millsap isn't shooting the ball well right now, but he's still a top-30 fantasy option.

Paul Millsap made 3-of-11 from the field for 11 points against the Knicks on Saturday, adding 13 boards, three assists, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

He's in a small slump to start the season, making just 40.3 percent from the field. Still, Millsap just has a knack to fill the stat sheet in other ways when his shot is off. He's a top-30 asset in standard formats.
Nov 8 - 11:39 PM

Paul Millsap filled the stat sheet against the Spurs on Wednesday with 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists, five steals, two blocks and one turnover.

He somehow finds a way to fill a stat sheet and lines like these will never surprise his fantasy owners. Millsap now has eight steals in three games to go with solid scoring and increased output in dimes. He's a top-30 asset in fantasy leagues.
Nov 6 - 12:30 AM

Paul Millsap double-doubled with 13 points and 10 rebounds, but hit just 4-of-13 shots and didn't make a 3-pointer in Wednesday's opening loss to the Pacers.

He did have five dimes and a steal, but didn't block a shot tonight. We're not worried about Millsap, but with Al Horford healthy and productive, he's going to have to work harder for his production this season.
Oct 29 - 11:51 PM

Paul Millsap hit 3-of-6 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 15 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

Millsap's assists and 3-pointers put him above most other power forwards in the league and he's primed for a monster season. He didn't have a 3-pointer or a block tonight, but they're coming. Millsap will be the second-round pick for a ton of owners this season, and they should feel rock-solid about taking him there.
Oct 22 - 11:25 PM

Paul Millsap made 1-of-11 from the field and 3-of-10 from the line for five points, seven boards, six assists, two steals and one turnover against the Pistons on Saturday.

He did fill up the stat sheet, but this is a shooting line that may have made Brandon Jennings feel better about himself. This dud was good for a true shooting percentage of 16.2, but who cares? Millsap is a fantasy stud and is definitely capable of being a top-25 player.
Oct 18 - 11:27 PM

Paul Millsap did not play on Thursday against the Bulls.

No injury was reported and he likely just got the night off after a stellar 23-point Tuesday. Millsap's usage was a little lower while Al Horford was active last season, but he was more efficient. Fantasy owners should target him around the turn of the second and third rounds.
Oct 17 - 9:41 AM

Paul Millsap hit 9-of-14 shots for 23 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block on Tuesday, but didn't hit any 3-pointers.

The 3-point shot has become an extra weapon for Millsap over the year of so. After hitting a total of 31 over his first seven seasons, he doubled that number with 76 3-pointers last season, according to Tommy Beer. And that has also given him much more fantasy value.
Oct 15 - 12:11 AM

Paul Millsap hit just 3-of-9 shot for six points and two rebounds in 14 minutes on Saturday.

Nothing to see here, folks. He's going to have another big season as the starting power forward in Atlanta, and tonight's game was a good example of what happens in the preseason.
Oct 11 - 10:53 PM

Paul Millsap signed just a two-year deal with the Hawks, meaning he appears to be heading for free agency after this season.

"We want to keep him," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "He is someone who is really important to us. He fits us very well. We’ve communicated that with him on a regular basis." With free agency pending, Millsap should be in for a big season, although it will be interesting to see him and Al Horford on the court together this year.

Paul Millsap was one of three players cut from Team USA's roster this week, along with John Wall and Bradley Beal.

Millsap was a late addition to the team, which had a few key frontcourt players decline to participate, but he was never expected to make the final 12-man roster. Anthony Davis and Kenneth Faried are still holding down the PF spot, though Faried may not make the final cut -- Coach K isn't shy about using small lineups vs. international competition.
Aug 5 - 3:01 PM

Paul Millsap has been invited to join Team USA during their six-day training camp in Las Vegas this week.

The team recently lost frontcourt players LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love and Blake Griffin, prompting Team USA director to bring Millsap into the fold. With 19 players competing for 12 roster spots in this summer's FIBA World Cup, Millsap still faces a steep road to making the team.
